182 American School, Early 19th Century Portrait of the Packet Ship Emerald off Liverpool Unsigned. Oil on canvas, 28 x 39 in., in a giltwood frame. Condition: Very minor spots of retouch. Literature: See the Peabody Essex Museum’s catalog Across the Western Ocean: American Ships by Liverpool Artists, p. 42, for a smaller composition undoubtedly by the same artist. For more information about Boston’s early packet lines, see Samuel Eliot Morrison’s The Maritime History of Massachusetts 17831860. An illustration of this painting can be seen on page 232. Note: The packet ship Emerald of Boston is showing here in two views. In the main view, she is anchored in the Mersey with two of Liverpool’s well-known landmarks off her mizzen mast: St. Nicholas’ Church and the dome of the Town Hall. In the secondary view at left, the vessel is seen under sail, with a view of the dome of St. Paul’s, the vessel there painted in much lighter tones, to give the illusion of distance.

30

In the anchored view she has an extensive display of flags. From the mizzen fly the flags reading 273 in Watson’s Code, signifying Emerald (American ship). From her main mast flies Boston’s Elford Code flags, and on the foremast she is displaying Watson Code flags from one to zero, in correct order. Built in Boston by John Wade in 1822 for the “Boston & Liverpool Packet Company,” the Emerald was part of what was more familiarly called the “Jewel Line.” Captain Philip Fox of Cohasset was her master, and the Emerald held the record for the fastest passage from Liverpool to Boston Light—16 days, 21 hours. We wish to thank Charles Lanagan for his assistance in cataloging this lot. $20,000-30,000

1534 Thomas Chambers (New York/England, 1808-1869) No. 10 View on the Rhine Unsigned, inscribed in pencil “Painted by European Artists/at No. 150 Spring Street New York.” Oil on canvas, 14 1/4 x 17 3/4 in., in a molded giltwood and gesso frame. Condition: Minor spots of discoloration in sky. Note: The inscription on the back of this canvas is identical (except in the “number”) to another work mentioned by Kathleen Foster in Thomas Chambers: American Marine and Landscape Painter, 1808-1869, Yale University Press, New Haven, 2008. In discussing the other work (numbered “No. 9”), Foster writes that “the Castles on the Rhine works leave us with an image of Chambers about 1860, and a glimmer of how he presented himself and marketed his paintings.” In essence, “he was passing off his work as by multiple European artists, or that others worked with him without excluding either possibility.”

It is clever bit of marketing that Foster tells us may have begun much earlier in Chambers’s career, and which she discusses at length in her book, especially with regard to several dozen paintings in an 1845 Newport, Rhode Island, auction. At the Newport auction, Foster tells us, seven of those several dozen works were attributed to Chambers, all maritime subjects. Other landscapes were attributed to artists with names like “Mr. Nesbit,” “Roberts,” and “J.Miller,” all of whom were and remain obscure. Through a careful analysis of those works and their histories, it is revealed that Nesbit, Roberts, and Miller very well may have been Chambers all along. $8,000-12,000
